Gathering with friends and enjoying finger foods is one of the best ways to watch a sporting event. It's even better when you can celebrate your favorite team winning with a large group of your fellow fans. A great finger food that you can make for any size of crowd is quesadillas. Instead of making a regular quesadilla, try this recipe to spice up your next game viewing party.
Steak and Black Bean Quesadillas with Spicy Mango Salsa
- 1 pound of flank steak
- 16 ounces of shredded queso Chihuahua
- 30 ounces of drained black beans
- 12 8-inch uncooked flour tortillas
- 2 mangos, diced
- 1/2 cup of diced white onion
- 2 tablespoons of jalapeno pepper
- 1/2 cup of diced mild green chiles
- 4 tablespoons of fresh chopped cilantro
- 4 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
- 1 teaspoon of cumin
- 2 tablespoons of kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of coriander
- 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 3 tablespoons of water
Combine the mango, green chiles, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, and 2 tablespoons of lime juice in a bowl. Add 1/2 tablespoon of salt and stir the ingredients to combine them. Put the salsa in the fridge until you are ready to complete your quesadillas.
Cut the flank steak into small pieces, 1/4 inches square. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium heat and put the meat in the hot oil. Sprinkle 1 1/2 tablespoons of salt and 1 tablespoon of lime juice over the meat and cook until well browned. Set aside until you are ready to cook the quesadilla.
Put the beans in a pan and heat over medium low heat. Add water, cumin, coriander, onion, and garlic and continue heating the beans. When beans are hot, mash the beans with a potato masher and make sure that all ingredients are well combined. Take the beans off the heat and set aside.
Cook the tortillas in a skillet over medium heat on one side only until the side is lightly browned. Remove each tortilla from the skillet and place aside. Once all the tortillas are all cooked on one side, place the uncooked side face down in the skillet. Sprinkle a generous portion of cheese on the tortilla and let it melt. Take the tortilla off the heat and place another tortilla uncooked face down on the skillet. Add 1/6th of each of the mashed black beans, mango salsa, and steak in layers on top of the tortilla and place a cheesy tortilla cheese face down on the top. Remove from heat, cut into 6 pieces and serve immediately.
